Police are still looking for four people linked to the shooting of an 18-year-old man on the front porch of his Wichita house Monday afternoon.

The victim told police he got into an argument with a 25-year-old woman at about 3:30 p.m. in the 1300 block of North Volutsia, which is southwest of 13th and Hillside, Lt. Doug Nolte said.

The woman punched the victim in the mouth and a man in his 30s pulled out a gun and shot him in the left thigh. The man and woman then ran off with two other men and left in a dark-colored SUV, police said.

The victim was taken to Wesley Medical Center for treatment of his wound and later released, Nolte said. He did not know his assailants, he said.

Detailed descriptions of the suspects are not available.
